Presentation: Bees are a vital part of our ecosystem and, as pollinators, play a critical role in the production of food crops for human consumption. They are also amazingly interesting insects. As spring approaches it is valuable for all of us to learn more about bees and how to create a bee friendly garden. What should we plant? How do we create pollination corridors and what pesticides and herbicides are deadly for bees? How do you go about building a bee hotel to encourage our native bees to stay in your garden?
Guest Speaker: Julie Armstrong
